No injuries were reported following a fire Tuesday in Basehor in which there were three major explosions, a fire department official said.

The fire was reported at 7:25 p.m. at Stierly's Floor Covering and Refinishing at 145th Street and Parallel Road.

"It was one hot fire," said Chuck Magaha, chief of the Fairmount Township Fire Department.

He said the business included a two-story metal building as well as an attached office area.

He said the building contained 55-gallon drums of glue and solvent substances as well as tanks of compressed gas used for cutting torches.

Magaha said there also were a number of vehicles parked in the building.

No one was in the building at the time the fire was discovered. Magaha said the owner of the business reported that he left at about 6:30 p.m.

At the time, the owner detected an odor similar to burning toast. He walked through the building but did not find anything out of the ordinary.

Thirty firefighters from the Fairmount, Sherman and Stranger townships as well as Leavenworth County Fire District No. 1 responded to the fire.

Magaha said the fire was considered under control around 9 p.m.

He said some paperwork and furniture may be salvaged from the office area, but there is not a lot that is salvageable from the building.

The fire is being investigated by the Office of the State Fire Marshal. Magaha said the investigator has not completed a final report, but the fire is believed to have been accidental.
